She is a comfortable fast cruising boat, well travelled and sea kindly. She sleeps 6 comfortably, 8 if young. Her walk-in engine room allows good access to all machinery and is rarely found in more recent designs. Being less beamy than many modern boats you can move easily around down below when at sea. She is well ventilated making for comfort in the Mediterranean climate and her 92hp engine gives useful power when encountering steep short Mediterranean headseas. Her relatively shallow draft for a boat of this size means most harbours are accessible. Even though she is strongly built boat designed for long distance cruising, she is a delight to sail even in relatively light winds.
